I only discovered this forum last week and it's brilliant! Wish I'd known about it before, it may have helped me get through some of those weeks that were tough. It's been fantastic to read how everyone has been getting on with C25K. In fact has made me feel good about my own journey.
Thought it was bad that I'd repeated some weeks, but no, many other people have! Thought I wasn't going fast enough, but great to hear that other people think that the 5K part will happen after graduation and it's not the speed it's the endurance!
I started my journey in July, unfit and overweight, found running for a minute really hard, lungs and calves on fire! Now on week 7 and this morning just run around the same park I started in and have run round it twice with no breaks - that's 2 miles!! I couldn't imagine on that first day that I would be able to do that.
The whole experience has been great and had lots of little milestones along the way, first 1k run with no stops, first 10 mins, first 25 mins, 2 miles....it just keeps getting better. Never thought I would class myself as a runner, I may not be fast, but a runner I am!
